Fashion Item of the Week: Retro Bikinis
Although summer is almost over, there is still plenty of time to rock a retro bikini. More and more clothing items are becoming high-waisted, and it’s no surprise bikinis are as well. High-waisted bikinis—popular in the 1940s through 1960s—have made a comeback. Exemplifying this history lesson is Wildfox Couture, which debuted one in their 2013 Swim Collection this week at the...
Fashion Item of the Week: Neon Fashion
When one thinks of 80’s fashion neon is most likely the first thing that comes to mind. But clearly this fluorescent fashion is not just stuck in that decade. Neon is the perfect, fun, and yes, bright summer look. More and more pops of neon have been illuminating fashion lately from skirts to shoes to accessories. Neon instantly brightens any look but too much neon is over kill. Sticking...
Fashion Item of the Week: Fringe Purse
The latest in Boho style is definitely the fringe purse. From a little fringe detail to a lot of fringe detail, these purses can be used all year round. They look good in suede or leather and neon or neutral. Most of these purses have shoulder straps which leave your arms free, which is great for every day use. Eventhough fringe usually goes with the Boho look, pair this bag with any style...
Fashion Item of the Week: Bustier Top
Bustier tops are not always the sexy garment worn behind closed doors—or even the iconic garment worn by Madonna in the 80s. In fact, they have been popping up everywhere lately in spring/summer outfits. The bustier top pairs really well with high waisted shorts or just your regular cut off jean shorts. They can accentuate your girlish figure and make your appearance slimmer all at the...

Fashion Item of the Week: Floral Pants
A perfect item for your Spring wardrobe is floral pants. Everyone is rocking the solid bright colored pants (which don’t get me wrong- they are great too), so go for something a little different with some pretty flowers. From the super faded floral to the very bright floral, they are all nice for any occasion. Since the floral pants are a little busy, they should be paired with a simple...
Fashion Item of the Week: Army Jackets
The classic military jackets have always been a fashion item for the colder months, such as the wool blazer. Now, the green army jackets, either oversized or fitted, are the outfit accessory and coat to wear. They can be completely casual- worn over a tee, with leggings, jewelry and platforms (Jeffrey Campbell Litas are my pick). Or glammed up with sequins, studs, chiffon, etc. There are so many...
Fashion Item of the Week: Socks
Yes, socks may not seem quite the “fashion item of the week”, but pair them with the right sandals or over leggings and it changes those old boring socks completely. Even being a little girl going to Sunday school, frilly little socks were worn with sandals. It’s coming back now for the grown up girls. Knee high socks and thigh high knit socks have been in style for while. But...
